Another fan of the show commented: "Why did no one tell Laura it's not a good idea to chew on a crayon before going live. She told RSVP Live: “Shane has always been my biggest supporter. Mr MacCreanor said John Izekor possessed a "distorted view of the power relationship" between him and the domestic slave, while Precious has maintained the view that she was helping the woman out.

But her passion for travel is rooted in deeply tragic circumstances. “We have a good dynamic and balance of work and home life, I couldn’t do it without him! “He has a 9-5 job and is able to look after the kids on the weekends when I’m working. “We also have a great team of family and friends who help out as well, so we are lucky."

Laura was hosting the late-night Sunday spin-off after getting back from her hen weekend at Glastonbury . "Police officers were called to the scene and the defendants and their children had to be escorted away from their home to a safe place and now, as a consequence of that, they are now homeless.

” Jacqui and Shane recently celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary, and have yet to mark the occasion properly as they have both been so busy. RTE sports presenter Jacqui Hurley celebrates ten years of marriage with husband Shane McMahon View gallery While the sports caster will be kept occupied with work over the summer, she also has plans to wind down and spend quality time with Shane and their two kids. However, the pair were only allowed to have a limited number of guests due to Covid restrictions. He played rugby for Millmount Rugby Club. She said: “We were meant to mark our anniversary with a big holiday but we haven’t had the time with work and we are also renovating the house. Yeah, we like to keep busy! “We are going to Ballybunion for July, I will be up and down with work but it’ll be nice to get away with the kids. The presenter enjoyed this year's offering with a glamorous twist - with personalised wristbands a swanky and helicopter arrival. “In August we have a holiday booked with the whole Hurley clan, we’re off to Disneyland in Paris. Brian worked as a Prison Officer in Mountjoy Prison so understandably it’s a job that had its moments. "How someone can have Christian values and treat someone like this is beyond me.

We have been meaning to take the kids for some time. Taking to her Instagram on Wednesday, Laura said: "It's been a while. Lily is obsessed with Disney princesses and has become her own little woman recently so I’m really excited to see her there.” When it comes to her kids, Jacqui has passed her love of sport on to Luke and Lily, describing them as “obsessed”. Time to go back to that magical place. I told him to see how the morning went and to take it easy. “As a parent, you don’t want to force your interests onto your children but I always hoped they would love sport, so I’m very lucky that they do,” she said. “Luke plays for Kilmacud Crokes at the moment and now has dreams of playing in All-Ireland finals.

“I’m so delighted they love sport, not even for myself, but because it is good for kids to be active and healthy. “I didn’t know what had happened.” And although she admits her children aren’t too fussed about her job as she is just mammy to them, she is proud to be a female sports broadcaster in Ireland. The TV star champions women in sport and feels grateful that she can highlight the successes of Irish female athletes in her work. “When I started out, all I wanted to do was sports broadcasting, I didn’t think about the fact that I was a woman,” she said. I knew that Brian was gone – I just knew. “It wasn’t intentional but now I’m so proud to be doing it.

“I don’t think you are really aware of the disparity between male and female sports unless you’re involved with it, so my eyes have been opened in the past few years. “Ireland has some serious female role models in sport at the moment, between Rachael Blackmore, Katie McCabe, Leona Maguire and Kellie Harrington. And they were wrong. “When I was younger, my hero was Sonia O’Sullivan but it felt like there were no other female sport stars on the world stage. Now, it is incredible to see how many inspirational Irish women are at the top of their game.” After another successful year of work with RTE Sport, Jacqui is determined to keep on top of her game. The lads in the jail that day had done CPR on Brian and basically kept him breathing.

It is no secret that she is a hard-working and driven woman, and she says it was her brother’s tragic death that motivates her to achieve her goals. Jacqui’s brother Sean sadly died following a car crash in 2011, and while it was a devastating ordeal to go through it also taught her to appreciate life more. “I know it sounds cliché, but his death taught me to really live life and embrace every opportunity,” she said. So many others don’t ever get that precious time. “I live in the moment because of him. If we can go on holiday, renovate the house and take all these jobs with work, why not do it?” This week, long-term supporter of both women’s sport and golf in Ireland, KPMG has announced that it will become the title-sponsor of the KPMG Women’s Irish Open for the next three years.
